Our Mission At Kaizen Academy

Our Mission At Kaizen Academy

In our last article, we highlighted our clinical approach to sexual addiction behaviors. While we’d encourage our readers to read the blog in its entirety should you get the chance, we’ll provide a quick summary of our clinical approach below:

  • Specialized Sexual Treatment – We engage in regular individual, family, and group sessions to comprehensively address the range of challenges that arise from sexual abuse and misbehavior.
  • Family Systems – We support the entire family by addressing boundaries, clarity in roles, communication patterns, and more.
  • Attachment – One of the foundations of our approach is to remind every student that we are all worthy of love and belonging. This helps to develop and maintain healthy relationships within and without the family.

In today’s article, we’d like to take the opportunity to take a step back from discussing our clinical therapy. Instead, we thought our readers would find it helpful if we highlighted our mission and its components here at Kaizen.


Why Kaizen

We are specialists at Kaizen, meaning we treat adolescent boys who are troubled by issues of sexual addiction, trauma, and other behaviors. Whether boys are displaying behaviors related to inappropriate sexual boundaries, pornography, or something else altogether, Kaizen Academy is a holistic residential treatment center a few miles south of Provo that offers hope and healing.

With a focus on restoring and protecting sexual health and safety for teen boys and their families, we offer comprehensive and intensive residential treatment with a robust program rooted in a mission our entire staff is passionate about.

Interventions Are No Longer Effective

Sometimes when addressing an issue, we have no choice but to resort to interventions. There are methods for interventions that are more effective than others, but more times than not, interventions can often make a person feel attacked and defensive as a result of being guilted for bad behavior. For a lot of people, interventions are a last resort as no other resolutions have proven to be effective, and for some, multiple interventions are their only means of being able to address the problem head-on. Because of the sensitive nature of these issues, and the not always positive outcome of interventions, this can not only make you and your family feel as though you are hopeless in being able to help your son, it can also make your son feel as though they are an inconvenience and in an environment where they are not wanted.

Our boys’ treatment facility is designed to be the exact opposite of this kind of environment, providing your teenage son with specialized treatment that’s specific to their specific obstacles. Additionally, as stated earlier, it puts them in an environment with peers that are going through similar situations. Both of these things will make your son feel that they are being understood, allowing them to grow and overcome the difficult situations that they may be going through.


Poor Self Image

While our teen residential treatment center is designed for teenage boys who have sexual behavior issues, there are many other issues that can come as a result of this, one of them being poor self-image. Perhaps this is causing them to behave in the way that they have been behaving, or perhaps they’ve been experiencing a decline in their self-image since addressing their sexual behavior issues. Whatever the case may be, improving one’s self-image isn’t something that can be achieved overnight. One of the five pillars of adolescent empowerment is having a strong sense of self-worth. At Kaizen Academy, we help your child work past struggles of shame and move on from them, allowing them to rebuild their sense of self-worth. While this can take a little bit of work and time, it provides them with an incredibly strong foundation of self-worth, something that will be a key element to helping them move forward and achieve their goals.

Those are just three more signs that your child may be a good sign to attend Kaizen. At the Kaizen Academy, it is our absolute goal to help you and your child overcome their struggles involved with sexual behavior issues, as well as the many issues that can come along as a result of these. We strive to help your child and family heal, so as to both continue on the path to happiness, fulfillment, and success. Contact us today to learn more about our boys’ rehabilitation facility.
